Relating Policy to Research and Practice: The Common Core Standards
Bomer, Randy; Maloch, Beth
Language Arts, v89 n1 p38-43 Sep 2011
Randy Bomer and Beth Maloch take a look at the Common Core Standards and the ways they are presently shaping the curriculum offered to young children in school. They suggest that the Common Core Standards in early literacy and early childhood classrooms represents a restricted image of college or academic literacy. Mainly, the standards' authors expect students in college to be asked to write about texts--to give analytic reasoning about texts, arguing something with textual evidence to support their claims. This, as you will see, is a form of literacy that receives attention in early childhood as well.
